Did Jessica Simsons’s Dad Come Out Of The Closet?
In a recent National Enquirer article, the magazine claims that the marriage of Jessica Simpsons parents ended when Jessica’s dad came out as gay.
Insiders say that Jessica’s dad, Joe, came out over two months ago. While his daughter was shocked, the source said that Jessica planned to stand by her dad.
On September 24, 2012, Jessica’s mother filed for divorce in California. While most celebrity divorces end in irreconcilable differences, Tina, Jessica’s mother, stated that the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities.
This strange filing has added more fuel to the fire. However, on Thursday, a family spokeswoman denied that Joe was homosexual.
“Tina and Joe Simpson have filed for divorce,” a rep for the family said in a statement. “It is an amicable split and there is no third party involved. Any other related allegations are completely false. The family appreciates your respect for their privacy at this time.”
In recent months, Joe Simpson has seen his fair share of legal problems. On August 4, 2012, he was pulled over for drinking and driving. Joe and Tina were married for over 34 years. Together, the pair has managed the careers of their daughters.
